The Pat Buchanan isolationists just got a 145 mph wind at their sails by the name of Katrina. A slew of paleoconservatives and Republican moderates who probably voted for Bush, gave him the benefit of doubt, but never were strong supporters of his Iraq gambit will be dusting off their "we need to take care of people here at home" rationale and joining the already majority anti-war movement.
Expect to see the bottom fall out of Iraq support. Expect even new lows for the next Bush approval polls.
What we've seen in NO the last week is what has been going on in Iraq for 2.5 years! Only Americans couldn't see it on TV. Not enough police or troops to ensure security, disease, disorder, dead bodies floating down rivers, no electricity, no potable water, no hope, massive mismanagement and incompetence. See a pattern here? If we don't make that pattern evidently apparent to all Americans we fail to take advantage of the monumental opportunity handed up to us by Bush and his criminally moronic cronies. Finally, American media showing the manifestations of the disaster that is this administration's policies and calling a spade a spade. Finally, a fuck up so humungous, obvious and ON TV that even the cable news channels, even some Faux News Republican apologists, are outraged by what they are seeing and feel outraged enough to say so. The pretzel logic of Limbaugh looks more ridiculously bat shit crazy than even his usual syphilitic rantings.
The Republican Industry uses manufactured outrage to move opinion. Here's a real outrage, more outrageous and more in your face than any previous outrage from this administration. This is not fool's gold. This is the real deal. Any Democrat not willing to shout this from the treetops and shout down any Bushie who tries to spin this turd should be as endangered in 2006-2008 as the Republicans in our sights.
